This is a shameless attempt to save the the most advanced civilization in
history from imminent self destruction by eliminating carbon emission,
dependence on foreign sources of fuel,obesity, hypertension and diabetes.
Cycling accomplishes all those things at once and helps us develop a better
understanding of ourselves, each other and our relationship to the cosmos.

Oh, horse puckey!
I like to ride bikes, have been doing it all my life.
The rest of that crap is just a fringe benefit,
and the blogosphere gives me a chance to share my interior
monologue with virtual rather than imaginary friends.

New Book out, I finally got something done.

           Things get a little crazy sometimes and personal family situations and demands have kept me from doing any bike travel this past year.  Which, of course is largely why there hasn't been any new activity to talk about on the blogosphere.  Most of my bike riding has continued and but only at the level of commuting and few club rides.  Since I haven't been doing much traveling I decided that the vicarious thrill of writing would have to suffice.  So, I wrote a book about bike travel and my opinions on the difference between touring and club riding to help other people understand that it's not the difficult leap or commitment that many think it is.  The book is called Ride Places not Miles and is available from Amazon for $3.99 as a Kindle version.  I may make a paperback available but am still on the fence about even bothering,   It's a cheap and easy read for anybody curious about expanding their biking experience.


  1. I don't have a Kindle. I'd buy the paperback if it were offered.

    1. There is a Kindle app for an iPad/iPhone, there may be one for other tables & phones as well.

    2. The Kindle app is available for just about any laptop, computer, phone or tablet. The real advantages I see in sticking to an e-book is the price and the ability to edit and update the book in the future.
